Scrappin Roots Blog Hop

Hello all and welcome to the Scrappin Roots Blog Hop!! If you happen to pop in, then make sure you start with Erin

This is hop is for us to remember LAYOUTS!! Remember those?? That is how I actually started with all this craziness! But I have been getting so much into cards that I forget about LOs. I really love to play with my pictures and seeing them on layouts gives me so much satisfaction!  But, as you will see right now, I am contradicting myself because I didn't print pictures for my LOs! LOL Sorry!!!

But, what I did do was create a 2-page layout withOUT using my Cricut and fancy machines!! and then the other two I used my Cricut and my Cuttlebug!

So just be patient with me I have three layouts for you and I hope you can get inspired!

First Up is my Cricut -Less Layout... I used the new DCWV Inmortal Love and chipboard also. Like I mentioned before, I only used a border punch and a circle maker. 






For the next two layouts I used the South West Collection from Treasure Box Designs. Aren't they the most adorable cuts!!! I love them!!! and when you purchase them they come in all kinds of formats!!! I used the SVG format and cut them using Make The Cut with my Expression! 
The papers I used I bought at small scrapbook stores in So. Cal a while ago. The girl collection is from Creative Imagination and the boy is Sugar Free.











I did not put titles because I don't have pictures for these LOs.... I was thinking of maybe putting them on Ebay and let them be the beginning of my business... hmmmm I'm still thinking about that!

Anyways make sure you guys visit all the ladies and get inspired to create more and more LAYOUTs!!!

Next on the hop:


wait!!! what is a hop without candy?!!?

How about a stamp set Hampton Art ~~All About Friends set!

I only ask that you leave a comment on this post!

I do not ask that you become a follower, but if you do I would love it!!! 


And just in case you get lost while hopping, here is the line-up!

Thanks for hopping with us!!!

Hi, I liked your layouts. I'm new to the whole world of blogs. I've been making cards for a few years but never done a scrapbook. I want to but I don't know where to start. My husband got me an Imagine for Christmas so maybe that will give the push I need. I've lived in West Africa for the last decade and a half and have thousands of pictures in boxes and on computer.
